Real Writing Jobs Reviews – Legit or Scam?

 

RealWritingJobs.com is a website that’s designed to help people find a variety of writing jobs; they claim to have a ton of leads and are simply acting as middleman between writers and contractors.

These types of sites have been around before and usually provide mixed results. These sites work by using software which visits a collection of job search sites, freelance websites, and other areas online where work for writers gets posted. They then return these results in your members’ area.

In most cases these are real writing jobs and are usually put out by website and blog owners who want cheap labor to fill their sites full of content. Other examples may involve writing product reviews that again are used by webmasters.

The one thing you need to be careful of is overhyped promises of riches; you may have been told that you can get paid up to $125 for writing one article but that is by far the exception and definitely not the rule when it comes to working with sites like RealWritingJobs.com.

First off, the really high paying jobs require the ability to not only write well but to be able to write on highly technical issues like medicine or electronics. Second, if these jobs do get publicly posted they are reserved for highly experienced writers that can provide web references for their work.

Bottom line is, don’t get too excited about massive payouts. Realistically you’ll be looking at a range of $5 – $12 per article or blog post. The sad fact is that real writing jobs, along with other coveted online work, gets outsourced overseas, making it difficult for US based freelancers to compete and making them work for much lower pay.

Is RealWritingJobs.com a Scam?

Since RealWritingJobs.com does what they say they do – provide you with leads for real writing jobs – it’s not a scam in the sense that they are being blatantly deceptive. However, there have been issues in the past with their billing policy and the quality of their service.

RealWritingJobs.com used to require a monthly payment for continued membership access to their writing responsibilities, which was frustrating for members who were paying more to maintain their membership than they were often earning.

The website has addressed this issue, and they are now offering membership for a one time fee. This fee has changed over time and is currently quoted at $34.00, though the one time membership fee has been as high as $68.00.

Fortunately this one time fee is processed through Clickbank. This means their service also now comes with a 60 day, no questions asked guaranteed refund policy if you are not happy with the service they are providing.

    Thanks to all the comments and reviews here. I was seriously considering joining Real Writing Jobs /My Writing Job (same company)- after all, only $34 one time fee and a $60 “ironclad” (their words) guarantee or money refunded.

    Here I have read two full pages of nothing but negative reviews and comments and I am actually really hoping to find a good review about RWJ.com, after all, surely it couldn’t be a total scam -if they have been going for so many years. But then I started to suspect that they may be based in India. The alarm bells started up.

    Many people are complaining about why they should have to pay a fee. Well, to me these people are not very bright, because they tell you why there is a fee; if they do what they say they will do, then obviously there are costs they have to cover. They say they will supply you with hundreds of job options per week. Not only that, they offer 6 writer’s tools apparently worth $3780. Obviously that is horrendously inflated, however these two things of course would be worth $34. If everything is ridgy-didge, straight down the line (Australian-speak for honest and up-front), then the $34 one-time fee is a total bargain for useful software along with constant jobs supplied to your inbox.

    However, upon closer scrutiny of this site, via the dozen or so experiences of other people, I read that emails and phone calls to their support staff are not answered, nor are requests for refunds. Also that the jobs listed have other competing writers vying for them and have to be bid on, often leading to links to other sites where more upfront fees have to be paid in order to access the jobs.

    So everything considered, we come back to the old adage: “if it seems too good to be true, then it probably is”. Especially with the claim of “No Experience necessary” along with wild claims of the income potential.

    My opinion of what occurs is that it is an overseas based company that makes money from thousands of people joining up each month based on a framework with some substance but not much.

    Sorry for the length of this review and thanks for reading.

    People be warned – Real Writing Job.com is a SCAM and nothing more
    Just a way to fleece your money from you. Their 60 day money back
    guarantee is not worth the paper it is written on. DON’T SIGN UP
    WITH THEM. There are good internet businesses out there, but certainly NOT Real Writing Job.com.

    BEFORE I hit the send button, I decided to do some research and I AM GLAD I did. I’m too old and poor to be chasing 40 bucks across India and the rest of the world. Ethics and professionalism is NOT a requisite for any company anymore. Yes it’s only 40 bucks but multiply that by a few hundred thousand and Viola, they’re making money. All of us need to watch “American Greed” on TV more often.

    This post is not very helpful at all,

    Who really cares about some one who failed doing so?? and why point the finger at RWJ?? are you guys contracted to write to them??? no your not, RWJ did their job by providing a list of companies you can write for, that’s who you are working for, NOT RDJ! that’s the bottom line here which everyone seems to miss the point..when things go wrong you blame who??? why not tell everyone about the companies you actually worked for?? where is the business plans you guys should have had upon joining up in the first place??

    where are the stats regarding your work loads??? who did you write for? what was the formalities working for these companies you had to go through?? was it as easy or hard?? what kink of criteria do you have to posses ??? who would this kind of work better suite??? anyone?? perhaps someone with very poor grammar and spelling problems??

    what kind of posts did you make, blog / article / or scripts??? how many post did you make a day?? according to your business plans?? or did you see what you thought you were going to make?? what kind of hours did you put into this?? how many articles were rejected and why?? what did you do to fix them???

    What kind of support is there for some one who is not a competent in this field?? do you have to have a high degree in comprehension to understand the terms and condition required when you have selected a company you wish to work for?

    Lets look into what RDJ position is here… firstly they are only a gateway for people looking for this kind of work,they went out to compile a list of sites for you so that you didn’t have to do the hard yards, simple enough?? who cares what and how they went about doing it, you pushed the by now button no one else!

    strange enough as I see it, people still point the finger at RDJ but you never see any mention of the companies these writers had signed up to, this is in fact your bank!! they pay you, NOT RDJ!! so clear this up first and foremost! your pay checks comes from the companies you sign up to..make no mistake. so again how is it RDJ fault???.

    Did you know that most of the writers that do work for companies are highly educated techno speed writers, they know how and what to write about with a cross reference to support the articles, skill at its best,do you guys have any idea as to how much work these guys can turn out??? even if all they got paid was a $5 to $12 bucks per submission. who here has interviewed a writer of such caliber that has gone though RDJ to land their dream job?? anyone ???? I bet not a single person,

    Don’t make a call based on a single post, where there is no data available to the reader to support the lost time and money spent trying to get somewhere.

    If you guys lost your money, tough!! do your research but always look for stats not gripes, go out and take the bull by the horns and experience it your self, learn from mistakes that others have made along the way so that you don’t come up six cards short of a full playing deck, having just said that, there is one big major problem!!!! no one is talking about the problems they went through and why it went wrong for them, its so much easier to blame not the company you had worked for, the Gateway that made you buy into it.

    Wake up guys, don’t laugh at others going to try this out, support them and help them.

    drill deep when your researching, drill deep as you can, ask the right question, you will get to where you are heading, there will be no calculated guesses, but one that will most differently help you make that call!!

    good luck peeps :))

    Well Jason, you certainly spent a lot of time with that rant. Much of it is very relevant but I couldn’t keep reading it and just end up skimming through the rest. Why? Because it was so poorly written…every sentence has some sort of technical or grammatical error which makes the whole rant laughable. You are not a writer’s left testicle.

    You can use that above link put in your refund request and they will definitely issue a refund. No problems at all.

    Please beware – I have been a victim of Scamming by subscribing to this site and affiliated partners. I signed up, viewed the postings and took a good look at their special offers as a member – one of which was the creation of a website/hosting via websitehosting.com. I paid the fees to host the domain and when I woke up the next day I realised that I had acted hastily and decided to cancel both the subscription and the website hosting. I got automated emails confirming that the refunds would be processed. The refund from realwritingjobs only came when I entered into a formal dispute via Paypal…but then the problems started. I was contacted by a ‘supervisor’ purporting to be in the technical team from website hosting wishing to process my refund for $270. He was based in India and had the full details of my transaction, the name of the domain registered, my card details you name it. He said that because it was a domain site he needed to access my computer to deregister it (I know, I know – how naive am I!!!!!). He asked me to search for ammyy.com and he then had remote access to my computer. I can’t believe how stupid I was but I did everything he told me to (he had all of my details so stupidly assumed he ws legit). He said that in order to refund the monies I needed to set up a Wstern Union account, ‘hold’ $270 in it so they could process the full amount back once everything had been confirmed and verified. I feel so embarrassed that I have allowed myself to have been scammed but as you can imagine, the funds were deposited into an account in India and I have no way of recalling them via Western Union. To be fair, Websitehosting.com haven’t replied to me as yet but even if they are innocent – and I can’t see how – realwritingjobsjobs provide and sell this service via their own company. Beware.

    I agree. Thank you Reviewopedia and the review posters for expressing their views of mywritingjob.com. I have tried a few of these work at home type jobs that they offer online and in newspaper ads and have never found one that was actually what they said it was. I did try one that I made bead bracelets, but it was so time consuming and complicated that I could not even complete one bracelet to get my investment of materials back.

    So, cheers to all of us who have actually tried one of these work at home propositions, as we have lived and learned and probably didn’t eat for a couple days just to pay for it! Now is our time to shine as the next generation of ” let’s be real ” folks! In the age of digitalization; we never know if something is real or not!

    I think if you where interested in the Bracelets thing you could buy some of your own semi precious stones and try your own designs; see what you can come up with yourself. the matter of complexity in the design: with a little bit of effort and time the potential for simplification is expanential. TV is loaded with shopping channels that spew out products all the time. Audrey I am trying not to advertise any in particular, because non of them are paying me for that service yet, but just look at the obvious ones. There are no quick methods just multi vector income. At least all the web gurus i’ve ever read say this about e-commerce, and that takes research time and planning. I’m in the planning stage just because I personally will not do a thing unless i am comfident I understand it.

    It really annoys me how people complain that they’ve been scammed or ripped-off… It’s just common sense to understand that if money is that easy, there’d be no such thing as poverty.

    RealWritingJobs is legit… it’s just a legitimate way of getting money in your pocket.

    On December 11, 2012 I watched a very professional looking video for mywritingjob.com website. “Alex’ promised immediate access to the website and a 50% discount of $34 for a one-time registration fee that would give writers and freelancers access to posted, daily jobs. No commissions would be deducted after enrollment.

    I used my credit card and paid $34 to register. Five minutes later I received email confirmation for payment. However, I never received the enrollment email containing a link to register a user id and password. Over a 72 hour period, I tried reaching them via email and their support chat line. Not a single response. Today is December 13, 2012 and my credit card charge is no longer pending. It disappeared completely. After doing a bit of online research, I discovered mywritingjob.com website has been operational in 2012 only. One technical writer stated she could not find any writing assignments on the website when it was operational. I have since enrolled with freelance.com which is a legitimate website. Buyer beware of online writing job scams.

    The problem with their so called guarantee is that you can call that number all you want, you won’t get a real person and you can leave a message, but no one will call you back and they don’t stop charging you once they start. They’ve been charging me forever and I can’t make them stop because there is no one who actually mans the phones and deals with people.

    Contact your credit card company and CANCEL the payments if you were silly enough to sign up. In future, if you come across a site like this, use your noggin and do a google search on reviews for the site you’re dealing with.

    I am not a member of RWJ, they approached me on several occasions via social media outlets and emails over a period of 6 months.

    I do not think they are a total scam because they do have the jobs, I believe they need to review their “Mission Statement” and policies.

    It does puzzle me that ‘Realwritingjobs” requests $68 to join. It is not ethical for job seekers to pay, it should be the other way around. When I pointed this out to them on Twitter, they called me a “freeloader” and then blocked my profile.

    No one should pay to do a job, and the jobs do not come easy, these jobs will not drop into your mail box, you will have to bid for them and you will be re-directed to the next Web site requesting you to sign for other paid memberships to be able to bid.

    There is no guarantee clients will choose your bid on the job leads, as there will be hundreds applying for the same advertised tasks. You will have to write probably 10 articles to receive $100 to $120 and you have already spent twice this amount on memberships. From what I read, it is a struggle to get paid.

    RWJ gets paid by their clients and sponsors, why should they request further payments from members?

    I hope that RWJ reviews their internal, contractual and “hype” cyber policies.

    I sent my resume, wrote a cover letter, etc. thinking I had a good

    Linda, I’m sympathetic to your post. There are quite a few of us – professional writers who are having trouble finding a good, steady stream of work despite our credentials. Unfortunately, RealWritingJobs looks predatory – hard sell hyperbole and superlatives. It also seems that RWJ also has – at best – a spotty reputation. I guess I’ll pass. Would rather park cars than get tangled up in a potential fraud.

    As for Jillin here, lead, led, and punctuation? Is that the best you can do?

    There are plenty of sites you can join for free and find writing jobs. Elance , freelance are among two, I know of personally . Many of these kinds of sites do not pay very well unless you are some sort of technological writer with a degree. You still have to bid for these jobs and sometimes even run the risk of not being paid , so if you choose to join one bid and get the job , make sure the employer has been verified when it comes to payment. Keep in mind you’re competing with India and other countries that will work for pennies an hour. Real Writing jobs is out to sell a product. They have a hypnotic sales letter and for the untrained in marketing it is meant to get you excited ; it all sounds too good to be true , that should tell you something.

    GH… you hit the nail on the head. I would disagree only on one point – the sales letter I received is not very hypnotic. Poorly written, actually. The company would do better to hire one of us to help them out and write a real letter. Web copy isn’t much better either – an arpeggio of superlatives; a shovel full of “cow dung.” RWJ made me curious, but then scared me right out of the door. I’ll stick with eLance and other services sites.

    NOTE: – THEIR SITE IS VERY APPETIZING AND VERY PROMISING BUT. . .
    I am very skeptical and am not sure if I can subscribe to their jobs. Logically speaking, I have not been able to convince myself based on these reasons:
    1. Why pay for a job when you don’t need any experience?
    2. Why 50% discount (i.e. half price) “save 50″ on a package that has already been priced to include total costs?
    3. Upon exit there is A FURTHER REDUCTION TO $24. I need explanation
    4. When you are still determined to leave it is further reduced to $12. WOOOOOOOOOWWWWWW. . . Does it mean the total cost is less than $12 and their initial registration is about $64 dollars?
    I then tried to zoom the check drawn but that was not possible. How authentic it may be, I am yet to know.

    Based on these I goggled but have forgotten the exact sentence.
    The result I got is summed up as:
    1. All legitimate writing sites are to be a part of a body.
    2. Their office location should be known and geographically locatable. With addresses and the likes.
    3. Dont believe cheques without authentication from that body. Sorry I’ve forgotten the name of the body.
    4. You are not supposed to pay for a job that promises earnings from your input.
    GREAATTTTT. . . MAKE THE ANALYSIS FOR YOURSELF. I AM STILL MAKING MINE. AND GETTING MORE CONFUSED EACH TIME I THINK DEEPER.
    Great day folks

However after receiving an almost daily persuasive emails later offering 50% discount in joining fee i was in fact about to give it a go . Still my gut feel says to hold on and let’s do some further checks…that is until i read this site and the eye-opening feedback …yes indeed it is a scam !

    I signed up with Real Writing Jobs to make some extra money. I did my research and saw some good reviews about the website. However, when I logged into the website to start working, I found out that you had to bid for jobs. Every job I clicked on took me to another website that requires registration and payment of a fee to become a member. Real Writing Jobs website is very misleading and not what I thought it to be. I am still trying to get at least get a few jobs so that at least I can make back my money. Just thought I’d share this with you. If others have made money from this website, please let me know how.

    Hello

    I learned from forums that this company operates from India (I am not sure). I am concerned that my country is being used to perpetrate shame and fraud. I have reported this to Indian Ministries and Indian Police. Thing are little slow here. But I will pursue and eventually this company and similar will get closed. I will inform you if there is any success or update on my part.

    I was searching for online writing or proof reading work, I ended up at real writing jobs, after refusing a couple of times I finally got an offer to take a 60 day trial for a refundable fee of £10.00, this I decided was small enough investment to give it a try. I went on the member area and after surveying the writing options advertised decided that the type of work offered was not what I was looking for. I emailed and requested a refund of my fee as per the terms I had signed up to. I have never received any reply, certainly no refund and the whole set up is aimed at extracting money from people with a genuine interest in working.I will not recommend this organization to anyone who is looking for a writing career.

    Yes I agree. If one is trying to make money why are you being charged for it. What should happen is that if they must charge a fee, the business should offer the service for free so that one can earn the fee so that one could see that it is genuine. Yes I was tempted to pay the one time fee but now if there is a monthly fee to go by then there is a changing of the mind.

    As an aspiring author, I have two books completed, one fiction, one non fiction. The only reason I’m not published is because I want to do it the correct way or not at all. As you can well imagine, I’ve been approached by countless “pay up front” companies, all promising to make me a star. Don’t fall for it! They get away with this because they ultimately do what they promise: get you published. Understand that there are two different types of publications: “Meaningful” and “Meaningless”. Unlike most wannabe authors, I expect my publication to mean something. I wont settle for simply “seeing my work in print”. (I can do that without anyone’s help). I can tell you from personal experience that trying to get published by reputable companies as a no-name author is extremely difficult, if not impossible! Anyone who tries to tell you that it’s easy is usually lying. No company, no matter what their status, is going to hire unestablished authors with no credentials. Are we to believe then that this rip-off outfit can show you how to earn a living writing with no experience? I don’t think so! Use your head people! Your common sense!

    I concur. “Vanity” publishing isn’t for every one. If you’re looking to get published there are some agencies who accept works written by a no-name authors. A good place to begin is to hire a literary agent. They will accept a no-name, but not without being represented. It’s a matter of money.

    For what it’s worth, there are some amazing writers who did self publish their first work and are very well known. Writers such as Edgar Allen Poe, as well as, Walt Whitman. I’m sure you’ve heard of them.

    Don’t assume that self publishing is a dead end street, because it isn’t. It’s all about marketing–but then again, isn’t every thing?

Instead the writer needs to get paid if he does a worthy job. But instead this also has become a way to suck the last penny out of you. Do something worth more than this.

    I am with RealWritingJobs for almost a year now. Until now they are legit. I remember to have used it for 10 days and I knew I could have cancel it during this period.
    As I like to write, I was first making $10 to $30 a day. Now there are days I can not get to finish the jobs in my inbox. Now I am making from $50 to $80 a day. I see some people are not even using the service and complaining or calling it a scam. I can not complain. It is better then clicking ads.

    To me, Marco sounds completely honest. I’m pretty experienced at
    detecting bullshit, having owned a supportive mailing list in the past. It *sounds* to me like, if you try to work their system, you can survive. You won’t make a bunch of money, but you will survive (barely).
    The problem I foresee: in the ad I looked at, I saw no mention of a
    monthly fee. Nothing wrong with such a fee *if* it is mentioned. If not mentioned, it smacks of dishonesty.
    Some folks here feel that any kind of fee is wrong or unethical. I disagree. If they provide a service for me, they are entitled to be paid for their service. Why should they work for nothing for me? They are not my slaves!!
    The last issue is that of getting a refund. In reading what different folks here have written, I do not see one post, as yet, where someone applied for a refund from these people and actually got it in a timely manner.
    Until I see that, I would not try out their service.
    best wishes to all,

    Realwritingjobs.com tells you upfront that you may not make any money at all, and they definitely tell you that if you do make money it would be along the line of chicken-feed (few dollars to pennies). The only thing they are not upfront about is that $47 monthly fee.

    Part of writing is the ability to read. I don’t consider them to be a scam. Sites like Realwritingjobs.com is for people who don’t want to search the web for these opportunities.

    Before I put any money into it, I decided to see what other people were saying, and that alone kept me from dishing out $68 bucks upfront.

    I too want to get paid for my writing but I am realistic that good money may take some time and may need to start with the small jobs to gain experience and to build a portfolio. The portfolio doesn’t have to be large, just enough to stick on a resume of professional writing jobs done.

Then they say “one time fee” of $34 dollars, but if you read the fine print, its $47/month if you do not decline within the trial period. This is a scam!!! They offer jobs from free websites you can visit on your own. They give you this b.s. offer then try charging you a redic amount of money a month. DO NOT sign up for this, I’m calling my credit card later and telling them to decline any charges from this company!

    NEVER, EVER, allow ANY company (no matter their size or reputation) to take a pre-authorized, monthy fee from an account of yours, because once authorized, it is the COMPANY with the authority to cancel the charge; not you!

    You must close the account or the card; so just never do it in the first place.

    Its half off one time payment through paypal for 8 week money back guarantee.. and they say ONE TIME REFUNDABLE FEE.. now my question is since its paypal and you have a problem and ask for refund they most always refund you with a click of button.. have things changed where it is only $34.95 for lifetime membership….. and since its paypal it would be easy as pie to get a refund. Especially if paypal has had several request for refunds I think it would be easy… anytime I have had to get a refund on paypal I just opened a dispute and ALWAYS got my refund within 48 hours no questions asked. And if the company you’re wanting a return from does not respond paypal automatically refunds you and quickly, so what I am trying to get at is, do you think its worth trying? ALL MONEY ISSUES ASIDE is this program worth $34.95 one time payment for what content they offer and work you get through the site? I basically am curious if the program works, money aside…?

    I didn’t ask for my money back but I made it clear they were not to take any more money when I cancelled the subscription. I told them that if they did I would report them to Paypal and post my comments about them anywhere I could find on the internet. They haven’t taken any more money. A good site for getting writing jobs at a reasonable rate of pay is www.peopleperhour.com and it is free to join. Many years ago I used to use Freelancer.com but the rates of pay are mostly ludicrous. However, it is worth having a look on there (which is also free to join)and if you like the look of a job, bid on it even if it is a low rate. If you do a good job they may want to retain you and will pay more. I would imagine that employers who advertise really low budgets get dozens of people bidding that don’t have English as a first language and as the saying goes “if you pay peanuts, you get monkeys”.

    I am a professional writer and get lots of work through peopleperhour.com and freelancer.com. Realwritingjobs contacted me via unsolicited email and I subscribed to their service because their service seemed genuine and I thought I would have a chance to pick up some work from it. Imagine how surprised I was when having paid almost 30 euros the bulk of the jobs advertised on the site are from Freelancer (which I have belonged to for years) and various other similar sites that you can join without having to pay a third party such as realwritingjobs.

    On the established writing job sites when you bid on a job you will get some feedback i.e. whether you bid has been successful or not. I bid on a couple of realwritingjobs projects (that were clearly their own) and didn’t get any feedback at all which makes be believe that the jobs aren’t real.

    I started full time writing about 5 years ago and did a few jobs via Freelancer for really poor pay just to get started. Being the lowest bidder won’t always get you the job but I was lucky because having got a couple of jobs at low rates, one of the employers gave me all his work. You can pick up some decently paid big contracts from just one small job. Peopleperhour jobs tend to pay better than most of the jobs on Freelancer but Freelancer is a good place to start.

    The next time anyone sends me a “realwritingjobs” type email I’ll ask for a 30 day FREE trial before joining or paying any money. If they have confidence in their site they shouldn’t mind offering that – it should sort out the real from the unreal!!!

    Two months!? For a writer I am sorry to say that you have not explained the problems your are having very clearly.

    Cancel your subscription. If there is no obvious way to cancel it then contact your bank and say that charges are coming out of your bank without your consent.

    Then go and sign up to the following FOR FREE

    elance.com,
    iwriter.com
    freelancer.com
    peopleperhour.com
    writeswap.com

    You won’t earn very much at first but if you have half a brain you will start to figure out how to get better paying jobs. Also recomend Tiffany Dowe’s ‘Ghostwriting cash’ course. It would have been a far better use of your money than the crap you signed up to.

    To say that $47 per month for sending you jobs from other websites is ‘a bit expensive’ is the understatement of the century. It is robbery.

    Real Writing Jobs – a bunch of thieves! Be warned and do not use them.

    I signed up for a 10 day trial at $2.95. I am in the UK, so this should have come to about £2, but it turns out there is a fee added on to this cost (which they don’t tell you about), so I was actually charged £3.11, which is ridiculous – how can $2.95 equate to £3.11? I realize this fee might not be added by Real Writing Jobs themselves, but they ought to know this extra charge will happen and should tell people in advance. Anyway, I have ordered plenty of things online priced in American dollars and never had this fee added to those, so I don’t know why it happened only with Real Writing Jobs.

    On the 10th day of my trial, I contacted them to cancel (membership of their site is a total waste of time, as all the jobs listed can be found for free on sites like elance, rentacoder, etc.) They got back to me within hours and confirmed that my membership was canceled. However, when I checked my bank account the next day, they had taken $47 from it, for my first month’s membership, even though I had canceled on the final day of my 10 day trial. It clearly says on their website that you will only be charged on the 11th day but they charged me on the 10th day, even though that was the day I canceled.

    I have just contacted them to ask (politely but firmly) for a refund and I will have to wait to see what they say, but I don’t expect to get my money back. Oh, and yet again, a fee was added onto this $47 that they stole – yes, stole – from me.

    It is a very misleading site. They claim you don’t need experience to get these writing jobs, but I disagree – I never saw one ad on there that said you didn’t need experience or samples, etc.

    If you want to get into freelance writing, you would be much better off saving your money, setting up a free blog or submitting to free article directories (or both) and then applying for writing jobs on elance, rentacoder, guru, etc, and when the employer wants a sample of your writing, you can send them a link to your blog or articles you have published in directories. None of this will cost you anything, but joining Real Writing Jobs will most definitely cost you – and probably a lot more than you expect! AVOID!

    I tried Real Writing Jobs. I was suckered by the amount of money they claim can be made. Every job that I looked at required experience that I did not have. I was upset that you can only make $5 to $12 dollars instead of the $125 for an article. This is a scam all the way around no matter how you look at it.They won’t let the contractors pay the writers directly. you have to go through them. This is the worst site I have ever seen. I would avoid it.

    Would I pay $47 for it? Probably not. Would I read their terms of service and not b***h about it when I get billed? Of course… Nothing is free in life, if you are going to giveaway your credit card be sure to read the terms and agree to them BEFORE you buy something.

    I don’t understand why they are not escorting the people who run the scam “Real Writing Jobs” into prison. Oh, yes, the “lifetime” charge of 90 dollars or so gets you the LIFETIME PRIVILEGE OF PAYING THEM $47.00 PER MONTH EVEN AFTER YOU’VE CANCELED THE SERVICE!!!

    I was glancing through my statements and notice months after I had canceled this worthless service they were still charging me $47.00 per month. I guess it’s a new e-business model: the “lifetime cancellation fee.”

    If you have half a brain and can use a search engine you can run rings around these clowns, but I doubt any of us could get away with half of the criminal activity they seem to get away with. I’m going to start trying again to cancel them.

    Next they’ll have a Web site “Real Scam Cancellations” telling you how to cancel scams that stick to you like superglue.

    They WILL refund them and stop future payments- even if it means replacing your cards. In addition it will initiate a chargeback claim against the company. Not that they will care…Am sure they have another similar outfit ready and waiting to be rolled out as soon as this one gets too many complaints/ chargeback claims against it.

I asked for a refund (money back guaranteed is 60 days) 4 times and everytime no response. If i don’t get a response back and lose the money anyway i will occasionally log in and see what jobs there are but i regret it now that i never looked it up on the internet before i joined. I make such mistakes a lot. So…i can only warn other peoples…realwritingjob is not responding when you are a member.

    To make a customer service inquiry with regard to this purchase, please visit:

    Clickbank’s customer service number (with a live voice at the other end, unlike RealWritingJobs!) is 800-390-6035.

    Don’t waste your time calling RealWritingJobs’ alleged help/support phone numbers. A recorded voice will admit that RealWritingJobs does not have live support technicians or billing personnel!

    Put RealWritingJobs.com out of business NOW! by emailing abuse@clickbank.com.

    I only lost my initial $4.95 trial membership fee before I called Clickbank to cancel, but I really resent the three days I wasted applying for jobs which I doubt exist. One phony job offer even made me write a 300-word “audition” article about the gold and silver commodities markets! Pathetic and maddening!

    I forgot to mention: the prices quoted on their landing page are hugely inflated. Up to $100 per article? Insane. In my experience, no one is willing to pay that kind of money. Period. Not even to professionals with 30 years of experience. People in India are ready and willing to write 500 words for $1 and everyone knows it. The drive for new content is so great that the non-native sound of it does not matter. They are just trying to sucker you in to get your billing info – if they can make $5 (non-refundable) off of you for a trial, even when you cancel on the membership they are still ahead. Plus they have your email to send you those wonderful affiliate offers, which may make them another buck or two off of you. Avoid this site like the plague.

    I made the mistake of entering my email into their squeeze page. They used it to send me affiliate offers for internet marketing info products. None of them were that remarkable, but the last one was truly awful; it was rated a D+ on IM report card, meaning that it is essentially a scam. I unsubscribed from their list and sent them a note telling them that only scammers would promote another scam. They actually replied the next day, but just to say, “We are not a scam, come and check us out” with a link to their squeeze page.

    You cannot check them out in any way whatsoever without paying the $4.95 trial fee, which gives them your billing info. Plus, I really don’t feel that a site already charging a membership fee should be promoting affiliate offers in this manner. Clearly, they are not there to help you succeed, but rather to make as much money off of you as they can before you wise up.

    Seriously, there are other much better freelancing sites out there. This one was charging an outrageous $47 per month, but now it is just a flat $77 (no doubt due to difficulty keeping people from demanding their dearly deserved refunds). Still overpriced, though. Even when you click off and it offers you a one-time rate of $47, don’t waste your money.

    Beware of this company. After reading some of the other reviews, they apparently are very deceptive. I responded to a Craigslist ad with my resume for a part-time/telecommuting proofreading/editing job that sounded completely legitimate for a web company. (I’ve worked for many years in business and am pretty savvy).

    Received a legitimate looking email that they would hire me on a trial basis to see if the job fit. However, I would have to register online with RealWritingJobs.com and pay a $2.95 initial fee, as they are the contractor who would “send me my paychecks” or something to that effect. No other fees were mentioned.

    After checking the online reviews on this website, I didn’t like what I saw and attempted to email them back to let them know I was no longer interested. Norton detected the email address as spam when I tried sending it. So glad I came here first or I may have been scammed, too.

    Dear editor.
    I paid the deposit on full membership on Sept 2. I understood that after 7 days you were going to charge my credit card the reminder of the full membership fee. After looking at the jobs available and what the payments are, I lost interest in that kind of work so I request NOT to be charged the rest of the fee.

    This morning I found email from Paypal telling me that I was charged money for full membership of “Real Writing Jobs”, in spite of my email to “real writing jobs” the day before yesterday.

    There was no response from them, there were only messages on the phone, so I contacted Paypal and they said they have to wait until 25th of september and then the claim can be escalated.

    Since 6th of September I heard nothing from realwritingjobs nor from Paypal. When I escalated the claim, this was their response:

    You have chosen to escalate your dispute to a PayPal claim. By ending communication with the seller, you are asking PayPal to investigate the case and decide the outcome. As part of our investigation, PayPal reviewed any communication you may have had in the Resolution Centre.

    Our investigation into the following transaction is complete. As stated in our User Agreement, the claims process only applies to the delivery of goods. It does not apply to complaints about the attributes or quality of goods received. Therefore, we are unable to reverse this transaction or issue a refund.

    I just couldn’t believe they could brush off my claim like this. Run as fast as you can from paypal. Their commission from all these scams is much greater then it will ever be from you.

    Next I will try to contact Clickbank to see if they can help

    For the record; as I left that site to come here, the drop-down “Don’t leave” box offered a “reduced initial payment” of only $4.97, and a “one-time payment” of $47,for “lifetime access” to their site.

I don’t mind losing the fee – it serves me right for being stupid enough to sign up in the first place.

    I also signed up to this site for the 3 day trial, mainly because they didn’t tell you much about what was involved until you had access to the site. I decided it wasn’t for me and it isn’t as easy as they make it out to be if you have no experience in writing. I sent an email to the customer support, (the link is right down the bottom of the page and you need a magnifying glass to see it). I requested them to cancel my membership and not to take out the full payment, of course I got no response.3 days later they took the full payment out of my account. I have sent several emails since to the site where you submit a ticket and also to support@realwritingjobs.com. It has been a week since my first email and 3 days since my last and still no response, not even an automatic response saying they have received it and will get back to me. I have just emailed clickbank so hopefully will get my money back that way.

    Well written, fair assessment of this website. I really appreciate the quality of the article and that it’s neither a slam nor an endorsement.

    You can easily handle this via Clickbank.
    After you have paid for the trial you will have received a CB confirmation email. In it there is a link in case you need customer service. This directs you on a CB page where you have several options. Either cancel future payments or ask for a full refund.

    DO NOT JOIN THIS SITE! There is absolutely no way of quitting it. I have tried. Even calling the cancellation number doesn’t work. It promises you only a 7 day trial period of $5.89 AUD and one-off payment of $91.58 AUD after the 7 day trial, but then I received a receipt from ClickBank saying that I was going to be making future monthly payments, which I did not know of and did not sign up for. I tried quitting during the 7 day trial and even posting a help request through customer service and not only did they not get back to me, but they also took my money. They don’t even have a proper customer service support. I truly think that this site is a scam! For anyone who has signed up for this, I am still trying to find a way out, so any help in this regard would be greatly appreciated.

    I am not trying to make ‘a fortune.’ I’m simple asking if this particular site is legitimate. Hopefully, we are inquiring about this same site.
